Summary:"In Becoming Culturally Oriented: Practical Advice for Psychologists and Educators, Nadya A. Fouad and Patricia Arredondo provide a comprehensive framework for helping psychologists increase and improve culturally responsive practice, research, and education. Research shows that racial and ethnic minorities have limited access to mental health services and are more likely to receive poor quality services. Compounding these problems is the fact that ethnic minority psychologists are poorly represented among psychologists as a whole, relative to their numbers in the general population. As a blueprint for psychologists working in increasingly diverse communities, the American Psychological Association now offers "Guidelines on Multicultural Education, Training, Research, Practice, and Organizational Change for Psychologists." In this book, Fouad and Arredondo show how educators, practitioners, administrators, and researchers can use each of the Guidelines as a basis for consciousness-raising and self-examination as well as for broadening culturally responsive practices on an organizational level. The authors provide thought-provoking case studies, checklists, and questions for self-examination and discussion. This book will be an indispensable aid for those who wish to develop culturally informed psychological services and teaching practices"--Jacket.
